Hurricane Michael, one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the continental United States in decades, slammed into Florida’s Panhandle on Wednesday as a Category 4 storm, then brought heavy rain and winds to Georgia and the Carolinas. Follow our live updates here and see photos from the ground.
The storm intensified so rapidly that it took millions of residents by surprise and left more than a dozen people dead. It was downgraded to a tropical storm at midnight on Wednesday.
Gov. Rick Scott of Florida has activated the Florida Disaster Fund to provide financial support to those affected by Hurricane Michael.
